The last Wolverhampton People's Parliament meeting discussed the development of the Safe Places scheme in Wolverhampton. The MP's worked in groups with Wolverhampton Police Community Support Officers to explain the Safe Places scheme and recruit new safe places in the area. It was a really successul afternoon with 14 new locations on board and another 17 interested in joining. In total, Wolverhampton now has 134 Safe Places, with almost 70 of them in the city centre. This is a fantastic achievement in a short space of time.
The Safe Places scheme was recently highlighted on Central Evening News, with Jess and James explaining the scheme and how it works. They gave a 'real life' demonstration about Safe Places using Tylers Gas and Electrical, the first Safe Place in Wolverhampton.
